Last I knew, it was a crime here in these United States to issue threats of violence. At the very least, issuing threats is another very good reason not to bailout Detroit. In a conference call about proposed bailouts reported by The Sunday Paper:

“If we have Republicans who oppose us, we are going to take to the streets, we are going to occupy places,” Leo Gerard, president of the United Steelworkers union, said.

I don’t know about you, but that just about kills any sympathy I might have had for the Big Three.

It would also be nice if someone explained to Mr. Gerard that it’s not just Republicans who oppose them. Taxpayers, also, are weary of giving all their money to failing businesses … and issuing threats is not going to generate much support.

    OK I keep going back and forth… on commenting. So what the who!

    I don’t think we should bail out the BIG 3. It’s not right to have to yet again bail out money hungry investors who could care less about anyone but themselves. And just keep draining the life out of this country and it’s people for their own profit! Sorry I have issues on that line.

    However if someone doesn’t do something to get them inline what is going to happen to all the people working in their factories. And all those down the line? Mechanics, dealerships (I wouldn’t boo hoo over that so much but of all the people who work there it would bother me) And what of the parts they make for not just their cars? After all GM makes parts for Caterpillar.

    It’s just a huge domino effect no matter what is going to happen. Much prayer is needed for our nation. That’s all there is to it.

    You’re right, Sara, what’s needed is prayer – lots of prayer. I fear, however, that it won’t come, at least not on God’s terms. I keep going back to the verse I used in my Sunday message:

    2 Chronicles 7:13-14 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

    Honestly, I just don’t see it happening.
